CertiPUR is a voluntary testing, analysis and certification program for the environment, health and safety properties of Polyurethane Foam used in bedding and upholstered furniture applications CertiPUR specifies substances that may not be used in the production of Polyurethane Foams and sets stringent maximum limits for some components. CertiPUR is a registered trademark of EUROPUR.
Pelma Certificazioni OEKO-TEX
Certificato Pelma OEKO-TEX
STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is an independent and uniform international control and certification system that helps to guarantee high and effective product safety from the consumer’s point of view. Verification criteria and limit values are far more demanding than parameters valid at national and international level. The results of the inspection made according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, Annex 4, product Class I, show that our Flexible Polyurethane Foam meets the human-ecological requirements of the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® currently established in Annex 4 for baby articles. The certified articles observe requirements of Annex XVII of REACH (incl. The use of azo colourants, nickel release, etc), the American requirement regarding total content of lead in children’s articles (CPSIA ; with the exception of accessories made of glass) and the Chinese standard GB 18401 :2010 (labeling requirements were not verified). The conformity is verified by audits.

Pelma Research and Development

We have always paid great attention to the Quality of the Product through the competence, the preparation and the continuous updating of the staff. Technological tools and equipment in constant improvement help us to satisfy the continuous and growing needs of every single customer
The activity of our R&D Lab is focused on the following activities:

  • continuous research for new raw materials and additives that offer a greater guarantee of performance and quality
  • study and development of new and increasingly sophisticated products, able to meet the different and more advanced needs of customers by respecting the most restrictive safety requirements prescribed by the OEKO-TEX and CertiPUR certifications OEKO-TEX e CertiPUR
  • participation in meetings and trade fairs
  • technical meetings with our Partners

For this reason, the R&D Laboratory, within our headquarters, methodically makes:

  • – verifications of the quality and characteristics of raw materials;
  • inspections, for each production batch, of the most important reference values indicated in the technical specifications;
  • verifications of the fire behaviour characteristics;
  • research of new raw materials, which offer better fisical-mechanical and performance characteristics
  • development of formulations for the creation of new products that meet the different application needs of customers.

The Laboratory works in association with the Industrial Chemistry Department “Toso Montanari” Alma Mater Studiorum – Bologna University and with the most important European Institutes for the creation and the certification of our Foams.

Our Lab works to guarantee customers innovation, quality and reliability in the field of Flexible Polyurethane Foam.
